Subject: The bees made honey in the Lion's HEAD
"Tell me, please, who is the prophet talking about,
himself or someone else?”
Who has believed what he has heard from us?
And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
For HE grew up before HIM like a young plant,
and like a root out of dry ground;
HE had no form or majesty that we should look at HIM,
and no beauty that we should desire HIM.
HE was despised and rejected by men,
a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief;
and as one from whom men hide their faces
HE was despised, and we esteemed HIM not.
Surely HE has borne our griefs
and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed HIM stricken,
smitten by G-d, and afflicted.
But HE was pierced for our transgressions;
HE was crushed for our iniquities;
upon HIM was the chastisement that brought us peace,
and with HIS wounds we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned—every one—to his own way;
and the Lord has laid on HIM
the iniquity of us all.
HE was oppressed, and HE was afflicted,
yet HE opened not HIS mouth;
like a lamb that is led to the slaughter,
and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent,
so HE opened not HIS mouth.
By oppression and judgment HE
was taken away;
and as for HIS generation, who considered
that HE was cut off out of the land of the living,
stricken for the transgression of MY people?
And they made HIS grave with the wicked
and with a rich man in HIS death,
although he had done no violence,
and there was no deceit in HIS mouth.
Yet it was the will of the Lord to crush HIM;
HE has put HIM to grief;
when HIS soul makes an offering for guilt,
HE shall see HIS offspring; HE shall prolong HIS days;
the will of the Lord shall prosper in HIS hand.
Out of the anguish of HIS soul HE shall see and be satisfied;
by HIS knowledge shall the righteous one, MY servant,
make many to be accounted righteous,
and HE shall bear their iniquities.
Therefore I will divide HIM a portion with the many,
and HE shall divide the spoil with the strong,
because HE poured out HIS soul to death
and was numbered with the transgressors;
yet HE bore the sin of many,
and makes intercession for the transgressors.

I write this to move it up in the queue; if you have not had the chance to come across it previously you will be pleasantly surprised -
The whole run seems good, but this one has the inspiration of new material and re-arrangements of the "classics" to be a joy. The existential and quintessential deadhead reason for being "on the bus"... something old, new, borrowed and blue, always presented in a unique way. I think of the story of Scheherazade's One Thousand and One Night's, we know the structure of plot, character and resolution - but each performance left us in the state of of satisfaction yet yearning for more.
Can we as an audience ask for more? Not until the buzz wore off and we were in extreme anticipation for the next night's show!
Thank you to the archive, is there anything more "Deadlike" on the internet?

Subject: Prefer this source
The other source is a bit hard to take during Stella due to that annoying buzz/ hiss - this source still has a little - but when you crank the volume, this one catches that amazing performace much better. Jerry's vocals are clear and it just has a wonderful ambience to it.
One of the absolute best vocal performances from Garcia.
Subject: Show: AAA++++. Sound: Much better than the others.
The sound here is WAAY better than the other SBD source. How to tell? Easy. Turn up the volume, then load this page and the other SBD page side by side. First play the Stella from one (just a few secs will do), then the other.
The difference? This source, the quiet moments are clean. In the other, there is a grating, migrane-inducing *BZZZZZZZZZZ* sound that blares through every quiet moment in the music.
Conclusion: Download this source. It's way better.
Subject: Unique and fantastic St. Stephen
Subject: Because of the Pre-FM Feed
For some listeners, it is too much bass -- bottoms out in places due to the original recordist's inattention unto recording levels. One may have to re-adjust personal levels to suit.
Nevertheless, at certain sequences, if one would be able to distinguish the lower tones on the spectrum, one would viscerally appreciate the entire clasp, re: defining the innermost dimensions of the electric bass and all its particular outer limits.
You will have to listen to decide for yourself, but, I guarantee, it will be worth your effort even if the bass is sadly overdriven, in places, throughout.
This show conjures many fond memories, so, perhaps, it really doesn't matter what songs they did or how they did them. The ambient sound -- well punctuated with Phil in all his splendor -- renders every song sweet and yet it pulverizes you, as well. You're like dripping honey hamburger captured in amber at the end of this.
On a side note: During outro of Might As Well there is an audible explosion.
Note the unusual grouping to start the second set: MAW, Sansom, Candyman, Lazy Lightning>Supplication>Let It Grow>Drumz. The band was obviously trying new things in its triumphant return to the stage!

Subject: Attention: Majorly Improved Audio!
And as dr. flashback wrote about that statement as it applied to the first SBD available here: No hat eating. Although there are some great shows in June at Boston Music Hall and The Beacon, this show is incredibly good. I've just replaced my old song files with these...yum! They're delicious. Enjoy!
Thanks to Jay for the Bertha remasterwork and everyone else involved in getting this version of this standout show available to us now.
This is a no-brainer. Five Skulls.
And no eating of hats.
